    I have always been doubtful about large swing-wing aircraft. I remember the Boeing 2707 project for a Mach 3 airliner and I'm happy it was never built. But apparently the Russians are happy with the Tu-160.

    well I've repeatedly read in Russian Internet critical remarks pointing to the fact their heavy-bomber force is ... Soviet (of course I've heard of the refurbishing but still)

    You were correct. At first sight the ones under the intakes are a new version of the Kh-38MEs with new shorter fin configuration (for more look here:https://missiles2go.ru/2017/07/16/maks-2017-nulevye-dni-do-nachala/), while on the outer wing pylons they are Kh-38UE with the distinguishable engine to the aft and, interestingly, short fins as well both reportedly for the T50 for internal use.
